Introduction

Can you marry young and remain faithful all your life? Will marriage fulfill your deepest desires? Is a secret the same as a lie? To whom should you be most loyal, your best friend or your spouse?

These are some of the questions troubling Lucy West, the wife of Max West, editor of a small town Massachusetts newspaper. The Wests' best friends are the glamorous Cunninghams; their four children are friends, too. Every August for ten years the two have shared a summerhouse on Nantucket.

When they meet in their early twenties, Lucy and Katie Cunningham, vivacious women who find their lives limited as wives and mothers, share a certain restlessness that leads to some wild times that their husbands know nothing about. Lucy keeps Katie's secrets from Chip, Katie's husband. Through the years, the secrets accumulate. And Lucy has some secrets of her own.

Then one summer a pivotal event forces Lucy to expose what she's been hiding. And now they all must sift through the tangle of lies and love to discover where desire has led.
